Labor Arbitration


Labor Arbitration is the term used for disputes between unions and employers based on a contract (typically called a collective bargaining agreement) between the parties.


The disputes can involve a variety of issues, but generally require the arbitrator to resolve the issue of whether the contract has been violated in some respect, and if so, what a suitable remedy would be.


Labor arbitrators tend to have an extensive background in matters involving the relationship between unions and employers, although not all of them are attorneys.


Mr. Ryce has handled hundreds of union-employer issues, while he was engaged in his legal practice as a labor lawyer, and more recently now that he acts solely as a hearing examiner or labor arbitrator.

What is Arbitration?

Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution is a technique for the resolution of disputes outside the courts. Arbitration can be either voluntary or mandatory. Mandatory arbitration can only come from a statute or from a contract that is voluntarily entered into, where the parties agree to hold all existing or future disputes to arbitration.


Why Arbitration might make sense?

 Arbitration often allows you to resolve disputes more quickly and cheaply than by going to court. Instead of judges or juries, arbitrators decide who is at fault and and how to remedy the circumstance during a private examination of the facts.

Arbitration Process

Arbitration is a proceeding in which a dispute is resolved by an impartial adjudicator whose decision the parties to the dispute have agreed, or legislation has decreed, will be final and binding. There are limited rights of review and appeal of arbitration awards.
